How we are living


As if it were not difficult enough to live without a kitchen, I made it much harder by deciding to go Vegan after watching the documentary, Forks Over Knives. Dave took the week off, and there is a lot of work going on but they are both hungry all the time. I've made black bean tacos twice, a veg soup, a veg chili, tofu "sour cream" also a lentil salad that was a bust and baked apples, in 3 days! With no sink and only one burner. I have to do the dishes camping style. But it will all be worth it when I am cooking in my new kitchen, right?

Petrified Rat, the kitchen torn out

Petrified rat found in the wall and the kitchen totally getting torn out. There was a check from 1928 in his nest for $3.85 written to the City of Tacoma.

Basement floor poured yesterday

I have been woefully inadequate in posting progress photos of the remodel, but yesterday a milestone, the basement floor got poured for Kim and Ryan's apartment. Also a sidewalk (required by building code) from their apt to the street.
The floors will be all heated and will have an acid etch. My kitchen is coming along too, still in demo mode.

Paintings hanging at Gig Harbor Starbucks

Please excuse the bad pictures, I forgot my camera, so Dave took these with his phone. There was only room for 4 paintings. I worked a lot harder than I had to. The large painting I was working on last night didn't make it, I ran out of time, but I think it might be awesome.
